INGREDIENT INFORMATION
Maintains healthy thyroid hormones

The thyroid gland has the highest levels of selenium in the body, because it is essential for the proper functioning of the thyroid gland. Selenium helps protect the thyroid against oxidative damage and plays an essential role in converting the largely inactive thyroid hormone T4 into the active T3. An observational study on over 6,000 people found that low serum levels of selenium were associated with an increased risk of hypothyroidism, especially in women.

Supports the immune system
Selenium also has an impact on the immune system. It helps protect immune cells, supports the production of antibodies and makes them more effective at destroying viruses and bacteria. Studies have shown that increased blood levels of selenium are associated with an enhanced immune response. On the other hand, deficiency has been linked to a slower immune response.

Supports male preconception health
In men, selenium is important for producing sperm and testosterone. A study of men with fertility issues showed that supplementing with selenium improved sperm motility and thus male fertility.
